San Francisco port to do 'everything possible' to host AC34

The Port of San Francisco has resolved to do 'everything possible' to host the 34th America's Cup.

This, from the San Francisco Examiner:

"Port of San Francisco commissioners plan to do “everything possible” to attempt to bring the 34th America’s Cup to San Francisco...

"...The Port Commission on Tuesday afternoon were scheduled to approve a resolution in support of efforts to bring the next race to the Bay.

"'Holding the America’s Cup Race on the San Francisco Bay will bring significant major sporting event income into the local economy from teams’ operating expenditures, and increased private and corporate tourism to watch races on the same order of magnitude as the Olympic Games, Super Bowl or World Cup,' stated the resolution."
